Juneteenth Freedom Festival

Juneteenth Freedom Festival

Head to Southwest Louisiana for three days of festivities celebrating the history of African Americans and Juneteenth!

On Friday, grab your lawn chairs and blankets, and bring your family to the civic center to enjoy a evening under the stars and enjoy the family-friendly hit, Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

On Saturday, enjoy a day filled with activities held in the Lake Charles Civic Center Exhibition Hall. This is where it all happens! First is the Scholarship Awards Brunch and Children’s Health Day. Concurrent to all this is the Big Fest! The day features BBQ cook-off, a Juneteenth parade, local vendors, the presentation of the Juneteenth Queens, a Freedom Festival Concert, and live music at night with Jarvis Jacob & the Gents, songstress Leah NiColette, then headliner Nebu Nezey & the Band.

Finally, on Wednesday, It’s Senior BINGO and Family Day. Then live music at night with Rusty Metoyer & the Zydeco Krush! After the music, the celebration wraps with fireworks over the Lakefront.

Happy Juneteenth, everyone!
